Episode 46

Heir to the Empire

Happy Birthday to us! Can you believe we've been doing this nonsense for a full two years now? We can't. To celebrate our anniversary, we're reading the Big Bang of the Expanded Universe, the ground zero for one of Star Wars' greatest villains, Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn. Yeah, I know we read a lot of Zahn but there's a lot of Zahn to read. Plus, we take a look back and choose our favorite books from our second year.

The Skywalker saga may be over, but there are enough books to keep Star Wars fans satisfied for years to come. Chad, Ryan, and Beth have started a series to keep you up to date on all the action. Join our book club as we run down the best that canon, legends, and comics have to offer.
